NME Award Winners HAPPYNESS plot headline UK tour for May / April live dates in Europe

Newly crowned NME Award Winners (Best Lyric – “I’m wearing Win Butler’s Hair, There’s a scalpless singer of a Montreal rock band somewhere” – Montreal Rock Band Somewhere) Happyness are planning a string of headline dates this May, which will also take in a first appearance at The Great Escape. Currently on the road with JAWS, Happyness depart for SXSW and a US tour in March and April, before returning for shows in Europe and their own headline UK tour.

After a whirlwind 2014, which ultimately saw the South London trio make NME’s Best Newcomers list, as well as The Sunday Times Best Albums of The Year, Happyness announced in January that they have signed to Moshi Moshi Records for the UK. On March 30th, a full re-issue of their acclaimed debut ‘Weird Little Birthday’ will be released, in an expanded edition which includes 4 bonus tracks. The band’s first single of 2015, ‘A Whole New Shape’, is released on the same day.
